Alan, there shouldn't be any problems with backing up to a Thunderbolt 3 device from within Windows 10 as Acronis will use the device drivers provided within the OS to know how to access / write to the device.

What may be more of a challenge is recovering your backup from the same device using the Acronis Rescue Media where you would need to check that your Thunderbolt 3 device is recognised by the media when booted.  This again shouldn't be an issue with the Windows PE version of the Rescue Media that can be created with ATIH 2017 for Windows.  You would need one of the people with Mac experience to speak to doing this from ATIH 2017 for Mac.
